Show the Money is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Advance, given to protagonist Mike by bar tender Jonnie from the bar he works at in the Red Light District on Portland, Liberty City.


Jonnie is debt to King Courtney, leader of the Uptown Yardies, and needs money quickly to stop Courtney sending his men to hound him for the money. An associate, Freddy has been playing him for a fool and has some money, which Mike can take. Mike drives to Freddy's location, with the player given two options. The first is to play it safe and take some money, or the second option is wait for more Freddy to get more money. The first option allows Mike to return to the bar quickly and the second leads to Mike killing Freddy and some associates. After Mike collects the money he returns to the bar and finds Jonnie dead, with blood all over the bar. A car speeds off with Mike giving chase, following the car on to Staunton Island.


Jonnie: This is it, Mike. I got a lot of heat on me from people I'm in debt to. I need to drum up some money fast. This guy Freddy has been playing me for a fool with marked cards. Make an example of him and bring back his loot.

Mike: Tell me more about who's on to you and what this is about.

Jonnie: Let's just say I owe King Courtney over on Staunton several grand for party favors. His Yardies have been hounding me recently.

(Mike drives to meet Freddy)

Mike: I heard you made a lot of dough with marked cards. I'll take it easy on you if you give me ten thousand.

Freddy: So that sweaty mess of a bartender sent you, huh? Figure I owe him some back from the winnings I've taken. I can give you a thousand now or ten thousand if you give me a minute. If you take that pile of loot, I'll figure you're satisfied and won't come back.

Mike: Hmm, should I play it safe or wait this out?

(If Mike plays it safe)

Mike: I'd better take the money and head back to the bar. I smell an ambush.

(If Mike waits)

Freddy: Well, I decided I want to keep the cash after all. Get him guys!

Mike: That's the last mistake you'll make. Hmm... I'm in trouble.

(Mike kills Freddy's associates, if he waited)

Mike: The bastard only brought five thousand with him. Better head back to the bartender with the loot.

(Mike returns to the bar)

Mike: What the hell? It looks like a massacre, the bartender is lying in a pool of blood. I thought he was being paranoid about the danger he was in. Damn! That's the sound of a car peeling out in a hurry. The bastards are trying to get away.


The reward for completing the mission is $1,000. The mission Race to Run is unlocked by completing the mission.
